Return to Hell

by Spun

This is our first single in a year, at the start of 2020 we lost our studio and then the pandemic hit... This threw us off, but we are back with 2:20 seconds of riffs and hooks! Return to hell is about returning to negative and sometimes self destructive patterns after you thought you'd moved on.

by Dutch

5 Piece band from Birmingham, England. Formed through friends and internet 'wanted' ads, via a mutual itch to throw ourselves into something cathartic and violent. Helping you face the monolithic gloom of existence with a glimmer of hope.

Asking For A Friend

by Solitary Set

We're Solitary Set from Baltimore, MD, though we all moved here from other places originally. We've been playing hardcore and pop punk for our entire lives, but with this band we wanted to try something different. Most of us have families and we're not as interested in screaming into a microphone or smashing our heads through walls as we used to be. Solitary Set is a little quieter, a little more introspective, and a little more mature, just like us.

Il Mondo, l'Universo e Tutto Quanto

by Dispersi

'Il Mondo, l'Universo e Tutto Quanto' (The World, the Universe and Everything else) is a track that speaks about the introspection and incommunicability in a society full of connections but without bonds; the noise between our true self and our masks.

Marathon Sprint

by Mummer

We're a three-person (wait... four! We finally added a bassist) emo/post-hardcore band from Lubbock, Texas. We've got a foot firmly in both camps, with influences from 90's/early 2000's emo and post-hardcore as well as noise rock like Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, and Archers of Loaf.
